Board of Directors

It’s time to elect YOUR Board of Directors!

One of the most important benefits of being an Owner-Member is that YOU choose who’s steering this ship! You have real opportunities to be heard and positively influence a local community hub by electing our Board of Directors. The application/nomination process is now over and it is time to VOTE!!


  • Daily’s Owner Members in good standing are eligible to vote for candidates for the Board of Directors.
  •  Candidate bios can be found here or in hard copy in the store.


There are 2 Board seats open for election this year. You may vote for up to 2 candidates. If you subscribe to our Owner-Member email list, you will receive an email that will allow you to vote online. If not, you may vote in the store until November 2nd or during the first 30 minutes of our Annual Meeting. This year’s meeting will take place November 2nd from 7:00-9:00 PM at Normal Bar (1365 Prince Ave.) More details on the Annual Meeting will be sent out soon.


The votes will be counted and the results will be announced during the Annual Meeting. For the Board seats, the 2 candidates receiving the most votes win seats. If a tie vote is required, it will be done by voting members in attendance at the Annual Meeting.

Role of the Board

The role of the Board is to establish a vision for the future of the Co-op and govern the cooperative towards these ends. At Daily, our Board governs via our By-Laws and our Policies. In addition to governance, the Board provides fiduciary and management oversight.

Our Ends Policy (listed below) is used to guide our organization in every decision that we make. The general manager regularly reports on Daily’s progress toward achieving our Ends.

Governance Policies

In Athens there will be a thriving, local, cooperative economy; a fun, inspiring place to shop and learn; a hub for community and civic engagement; and a source of excellent food.
